Summary

  • Lewandowski tops the scoring chart on 30 goals.
  • The Polish forward is the first player since 1. FC Köln's Dieter Müller (34 in 1976/77) to break the 30-goal mark.
  • First Bayern player to win the award since Mario Gomez (28 goals) in 2010/11.

FC Bayern München striker Robert Lewandowski has been awarded the Torjägerkanone for finishing as the Bundesliga's top scorer in the 2015/16 campaign.

The 27-year-old struck the opening goal at home to Hannover 96 on Matchday 34 to take his final league tally to 30, five ahead of Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in second place.

The achievement crowns a remarkable campaign for the Polish forward, who notched a further nine goals in the UEFA Champions League and three in the DFB Cup.

Arguably his standout moment of 2015/16 was on Matchday 6, when he came off the bench in the second half against VfL Wolfsburg to score five goals in nine minutes to hand Bayern a 5-1 victory. This has also been his most prolific season ever, beating his previous best of 24 Bundesliga goals set in 2012/13 while still at Dortmund.
